Before Campbell starts ranting, I'll set you straight: There is no such thing as a 2D ArrayList.

What you can have is an ArrayList of ArrayLists, which is almost the same thing; and the definition for it would look something like:
List<List<SomeClass>> my2DList = new ArrayList<ArrayList<SomeClass>>();

But how you convert it to a HashMap will depend entirely on how you want to do it; and for that we'll need a lot more information.

Then you should check this first and then come back with more specific problem.

OK, well firstly, you're going to need to add them in order (or at least it's going to be an awful lot easier), because an ArrayList is NOT an array. To be honest, if this structure is meant to simulate a matrix, I'd suggest that you use a Map rather than a "2D" ArrayList; otherwise just use a plain old 2D array (sorry Campbell), viz:
SomeClass[][] = new SomeClass[10][10];

I think perhaps you need to explain a bit more about what you want to do.

That’s 2D arrays I go on about
But you are right; there ain’t no such thing as a 2D ArrayList either.
